The cheeky, larger-than-life drag queen and outrageous comic—”The Joan Rivers of the Drag World,” (New York Times)—who isn’t afraid to shock or offend brings her trademark acerbic wit and sharp commentary to the page in an uproarious illustrated collection of advice.
When it comes to insult comics, Bianca Del Rio is in a class by herself. Fierce, funny, and fabulous—a would-be love child sired by John Waters and birthed by Joan Rivers—Bianca sandblasted her name in the annals of pop culture on RuPaul’s Drag Race. Thanks to her snarky frankness, impeccable comedic timing, and politically incorrect humor, she became the show’s breakout star, winning its sixth season.
In Blame It On Bianca Del Rio, Bianca shares her opinions loudly and proudly, offering raucous, hilarious, no-holds-barred commentary on the everyday annoyances, big and small, that color her world, and make it a living, albeit amusing, hell for anyone who inhabits it. A collection of biting advice filled with vibrant photos from Bianca’s twisted universe, Blame It On Bianca Del Rio will shock you and keep you laughing. But be warned: it is not for the faint of heart!
Bianca Del Rio is the quick witted insult comic drag queen who won season 6 of my favourite TV show, Rupaul’s Drag Race. Even though she isn’t my favourite queen to come from the show when I heard she was bringing out a book responding to advice questions I knew I’d have to give it a read. If you loved her on the show I’d highly recommend giving this a read. I’d say it’s a perfect, hilarious read for summer especially if you’re going away and want something to read around the pool with a cocktail. As there isn’t a plot and it’s just responses to questions you can pick it up and whiz through a couple of letters whenever you have a spare few minutes.
Not every joke lands and some topics she takes a little too far for my liking but she is known for pushing the limit as far as she possibly can so you wouldn’t really go into this expecting her to respond with hearts and hugs. There’s also really strong language used throughout which doesn’t offend me but if it’s something you’re not keen on I’d give it a miss.
